    It has the trappings of an epic, but it's a more intimate story that nonetheless has excellent action throughout. It's fascinating to see Fassbender right before his career went into the stratosphere. Even still, the "men on a mission" aspects are a little light and the love interest feels weirdly tacked on toward the end of a movie that should probably have a much grimmer ending.

    But hoo boy, those action sequences. Neil Marshall is a master and I am so ready for him to do something on a scale even more massive than the Game of Thrones episodes he's helmed.

    Centurion was a mixed bag of a movie for me. It started out as a ho-hum battle picture, plodding along rather weakly (though not aimlessly) until finally, FINALLY the endgame between the last remnants of the 9th Legion and the bad asses of the Picts gave me a measure of satisfaction.

    Four characters stood out the most to me:

    A) Fassbender was rock steady as the main Roman player, Quintus Dias. He rallied the ragtag group of soldiers, keeping them…

    Although some of the blood effect are bad, especially near the beginning, this is a great swords and sandals movie, with a terrific performance from Michael Fassbender, and some great minor roles from some great British actors, plus I absolutely love Olga Kurylenko and Imogen Poots in this.

    The plot seemed pretty non-existent, and the performances were all very average, so watching this has become a blur to me.

    This film posits what happened to the legendary Ninth Legion of Rome that disappeared into history without an explanation. In this movie, the Ninth Legion is attacked by the Picts, of which little is actually known, except they lived outside Roman rule and their name is sometimes meant to be "the Painted or Tattooed People."

    The stars are Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, David Morrissey, Liam Cunningham, Imogen Poots (unfortunate name, but she IS beautiful!), and, for my money, the star…

    Neil Marshall's typically termitic new movie pits glum and largely interchangeable Roman men against two infuriatingly independent Pictish women and a lot of grisly gorehound violence. Michael Fassbender's the ostensible lead, getting to do a few weird variations on his HUNGER role during the torture scenes, but it's really all about Olga Kurylenko (one facial expression: dismissive anger) as the film's equivalent of the "treacherous Indian scout" and Imogen Poots (a downright lovely face + a surname to make 10-year-olds…

    CENTURION, on second viewing, just leaped into my third favorite Neil Marshall film. The story is so good and engaging despite its forced, abrupt ending.

    Film doesn't focus how the UNESCO famous Hadrain wall is built or why,motives of emperor Hadrain.Even picts were not clearly explained. The movie is about how a Rome centurion escapes picts after being ambushed & what he does when Rome betrays him in the end. Locations are serene.

    Aside from the performances of Michael Fassbender and Dominic West, Centurion is nothing more than visceral, old-fashioned, B-Movie entertainment. For those seeking a mindless distraction, recommended. For those craving anything more, skip it.
